US Air Force Operational Weather Structure and The Meteorological Forecast Process

December 18, 2018 11:00 am
CIRA Directors Conference Room

Presented by: Kerrin Caldwell, Major, USAF

Hosted by:

Chief, Air Force Weather Program Requirements & Resources


Abstract:
The operational design and strategic construct of weather operations within the Air Force weather architecture is rapidly changing. The motto of “bring the future faster” has allowed for the introduction of unconventional training methods and forecasting techniques being utilized by todays weather operators. New capability requirements upgrades to our weather data assimilation center has restructured the way Air Force weather operations utilizes numerical weather modeling and forecasting.
